Phototex will stick to virtually any flat surface and some slightly textures surfaces. We have experience sticking it over wood chip wall paper. Walls, windows, Poles, doors, cars, boats, tiles, sealed wood, mirrors, white fronted goods and many more. Visit any page on www.phototex.co.uk to see real applications.
Yes it can, high humidity does not affect Phototex. We have been running a test for over 6 months in a shower and it is still stuck as though it was the first day. For added protection it can be liquid laminated.
Phototex can be ‘kiss cut’ when it is printed so you simply peel it off as the right shape, sharp blade are recommended. Phototex can be simply cut with scissors.
We always recommend a minimum drying period of 4 weeks for painted wall, longer if possible to make sure that Phototex is easy to remove.
Phototex is well suited for this due to its patented adhesive. We have customers who use Phototex over and over again by re-applying it to the release liner when they take it from the wall, ‘look after the glue and it will look after you’.
99.9% of the time Phototex leaves no residue.
